Did a lot of research in choosing somewhere to stay whilst in San Francisco and was impressed with the reviews on here which also fitted our budget. Great location and love how Jon Handlery still runs this family hotel. Our room was 701 and Jon kindly upgraded us to a wee suite in the historic section which was lovely and... More

Our room on the 6th floor overlooked a courtyard and was clean, very spacious and contained everything that we needed. We were not disturbed by any... More

It not the Westin or Mark or Fairmont. But it is markedly less expensive and a good location. It's a little "gritty" around the hotel but that's Union Square for you. Some great little diners within 1 block for those looking for a diner experience (decent food, good price, quick, blue collar, Americana.

I did a lot of research to find a hotel that is decent as well as reasonable, and this one sits in that sweet spot. Still it was the most, I had paid for a hotel in recent times; but the city is unreasonably expensive and I would kind of agree with the pricing. That said, the room was decent,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Handlery Union Square Hotel for 3 nights over the Valentine holiday and had a wonderful stay! The hotel was clean and beautiful and our 'historic' room was just right. The room was very clean, spacious, and had the amenities we needed. The location is perfect- brought BART from SFO for $8.65 per person... More

My partner and I stayed at the Handlery for three nights, in town for business and pleasure. The property is located about a six minute walk up Powell Street from Market, where many of the transportation services (e.g.BART) stop, and only a few steps away from Union Square park. (If you are a shopper, all the upscale name brands are... More
